Notes

notes: to my ears this version has a slight edge in sound
quality versus other copies. I've also never been
convinced that some of the other material that
circulates as this date isn't actually from 10/8/68...

These Hartbeat shows are OK, but not a patch on the full deck.

This is hands-down my favorite show of all time. The jam after Death Don't is so spacey and beautiful. It is haunting. I just wish there was more information available on this show.

Subject: same as released material?
I can't recall if this is some of the same material released on the official "Hartbits" cds, but the quality of this performance blows the quality of the officially released ones out there. Kudos!

Technically, this isn't the Grateful Dead. There is no Bob Weir, no Pigpen, no Bill Kreutzmann. And according to some sources, Jack Casady was on stage.

But the sound on this soundboard is fantastic, and any 'old-time' Dead Head will certainly enjoy.
